You only need one pan to make this recipe for Skillet Spaghetti and Meatballs because the spaghetti cooks right in the sauce! Your weeknight dinner just got even easier!
Are you totally shocked that I’m back with another skillet dinner? In reality, I actually made this back in December, took pictures, the whole shebang. But for some reason I thought it was a good idea to sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese all over the skillet when it was done. Bad idea. Tasted good. Looked terrible.
In any event, it took me until last weekend but I finally remade it. This time, I opted to garnish with parmesan and parsley and the photos turned out much better 🙂 So now I can finally share it with you guys!
I know spaghetti and meatballs is not an original recipe…but it is a favorite. And this is the first time I’ve tried cooking the spaghetti noodles right in the pan and I gotta say, I love it! It’s super easy and I think it helps the sauce stick to the noodles better which is a bonus in my opinion.
So here’s what you do:
So what do you think?! Can you handle it? As usual, if you don’t have a lid for your skillet, just cover it with a big baking sheet! Works like a charm.
This meal is fancy enough for dinner guests and simple enough for a weeknight family meal! Feel free to sub your own favorite meatball recipe….just make them all similar sized so they cook evenly.
